The Undertaker: Time to bow out?

The Undertaker is, without doubt, one of the biggest stars the WWE has ever had. 

'The Phenom' is the only person to ever have a streak of 21 wins and no losses at WrestleMania. But is it time for The Undertaker to 'Rest In Peace?'

Making his debut in WWE back in 1990, he was part of the era of wrestling we mostly link Hulk Hogan, Mr Perfect and Sgt Slaughter to, but The Undertaker made a name for himself with his trademark 'Tombstone Piledriver' finishing move.

Undertaker came through the ranks and was part of arguably the greatest tag team in WWE history 'The Brothers of Destruction' with his 'brother' Kane. 

The Undertaker is a name, much like Triple H, Shawn Micheals and Hulk Hogan, which will always be remembered in WWE and will always make the hair on the back of your neck stand up when you hear the first bar of his music.

With the sad and tragic passing of Undertaker's valet (Paul Bearer) earlier this year, WWE even managed to turn this into a storyline because they seem to have problems with writing The Undertaker in-and-out of the show as he decides only to come back and defend his streak.

Take nothing away from the 'Dead Man', him and CM Punk's match at this years WrestleMania was the best by a country mile, but Punk held most of the match for him. 

At nearly 50-years-old he cannot run around the ring and move the way he used to. Kane is the same, except the training he does every week seems to have given him a bit of an edge.

I am not saying I don't still love watching him, he has one of the most unique characters I have ever seen and a persona that will never be matched but, I feel with the 30th Anniversary of WrestleMania scheduled for April next year, that this would be the best place for The Undertaker to take his final bow.

With a career spanning nearly three decades, three World titles, four WWE titles, six Tag Team titles, a Royal Rumble win and his famous streak - the record books will ensure The Undertaker will never be forgotten.
